Day 18 – This is a pretty jar in my home that inspired a painting. There is something about lilies of the valley. Something magical. I can remember seeing them at my parents house for the first time, how the pretty little belles hung from the stems, like lanterns in a fairy garden. I never got over my fascination with them, so I was happy to finally get to work with them. These are actually hanging in my kitchen on a set of wall sconces that my Dad and I created from old wood. They look great in my kitchen, although it took some convincing with my husband, as the “patina” of the wood was pretty rough. But he was happy with the final result, as was I! If you scroll down past the painting, you will see the sconces that we made. (I call them sconces, as I can take the flowers out and put candles in. So they do double duty)
This painting is available in my etsy shoppe.
